    Howa 1500 builds **post them**

    I have the MPA grip on two of my HCRs, a Ruger RPR 556 trainer rifle, and a Ruger 22RPR I use for 22 matches. They are tight and wobble free on all of them. FYI the grip is molded for the MPA chassis so the lines don’t match perfectly. I don’t care about it, but if it bothers a person it could...

    Howa 1500 builds **post them**

    I don’t dislike the Luth stock, but the XLR is in a different league as far as adjustments etc. plus I needed the weight to balance out the barrel etc. I like the XLR buttstock and have put them on McCree and HCR chassis. It’s solid, feels substantial, and I was able to get a little shorter...

    I like it for positional shooting. I run that rifle in regional PRS/NRL matches.

    RPR 556 Alternative?

    Well I am happy with mine it appears it will do exactly what I want which is a midrange trainer. Only mod so far is an Arca rail. This was rounds 16-20 during break in off bipod and rear bag. Yes I shagged one it was not the rifle. If it ever stops raining here I will shoot it out to 600yds...

    RPR 556 Alternative?

    Not yet I only have around 75rds through it. After the barrel breaks in I plan on stretching it out I am going to use it for a trainer and the local 600yd PRS/NRL club matches. The group shot above was rds 11-15.

    RPR 556 Alternative?

    I just bought one on sale too last one they had in stock. I haven’t done any load development yet with the 80gr SMK but it loves 77gr PMC X-Tac.

    Howa HCR

    Correct it is the Bighorn Arms nut Criterion sells with the Howa prefits. No clearance problems at all the forearm is relieved for clearance.

    Howa HCR

    Well the return to zero is spot on when the barreled action is removed and reinstalled. Plenty of mloc slots, I have an Arca rail on the fore end. It’s nice and trim, machining is really well done, and it is accurate. I like it better than my KRG Bravo. You can pick them up on occasion on eBay...

    Howa HCR

    I just had my match HCR cerakoted. I also have a backup HCR in black, and a stock HCR for work. They shoot great, do you have any questions in particular?

    Eberlestock gunslinger 2 or mystery ranch 3 day assault

    I have a Gunslinger 2 that I use for matches and for rucking to stay in shape. I have a bad back and I have to have a frame pack to carry comfortably. The Gunslinger took some fiddling with the adjustments but once I found the sweet spot it rides and carries great. Hunting I use the scabbard for...

    Got a Magneto Speed

    In my opinion the chrono load workup is only valid if you have your reloading technique dialed in. If you don’t have low single digit SD consistently it won’t be a valid test. If you are a reloading beginner use an OCW or ladder test.

    Thinking about getting the RPR in 5.56. Am I crazy?

    I just bought one on sale at a Big R. It was the last one they had on site. Took it out today with PMC X-TAC 77gr SMK and did barrel break in. This group was the 11-15 shots fired: This group was the 16-20 rounds fired: The low shot was all me. I am really pleased with this rifle can’t wait...
